Tom and Jerry

Tom and Jerry Release Date: March 5, 2021

The big screen Tom and Jerry sees Tom the cat and Jerry Mouse getting kicked out of their home and relocating to a fancy New York hotel where a scrappy employee named Kayla (Chloe Grace Moretz) will lose her job if she can’t evict Jerry before a high-class wedding at the hotel. Her solution? Hiring piano playing Tom to get rid of the pesky mouse.

The film is a live action/animated hybrid.

Tom and Jerry began life as a series of long-running shorts created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera in 1940. They revolved around the exploits of house cat Tom and his never-ending battle with mouse Jerry. Seven of the shorts, released by MGM, won Oscars from 1943-53. The animated pair have remained in the pop culture consciousness over the years, first getting their own full-length animated theatrical film with 1993’s Tom and Jerry: The Movie. That film bombed at the box office. Costing over $8 million it took in less than $3.5 million.

Tom and Jerry in theaters AND on HBO Max March 5, 2021.
